The movie begins with the introduction of Philippe Petit (Joseph-Gordon Levitt), a High-wire French artist, and his dream to walk across the Twin towers of The World Trade Centre. Philippe Petit seems to be an inspired and lively guy who has a different perception towards life. Philippe collects a team to help him accomplish his mission.

At first, people hesitated, but when they saw the artist’s passion, they agreed. The team starts working in and around the World Trade Centre to look for ways to enter and reach the terrace; for the act was illegal as risking your life in front of a mob is promoting danger, but Philippe is no ordinary person. His will and determination are too strong for rules and laws to stop him. They work for a few days and finally decide to execute the Impossible.
